Autumn Leaves

Good Morning all.  Hopefully this post has worked as ive schelduled it.

Its time for a new challenge over at Cardz4guyz with the theme being

AUTUMN/FALL LEAVES

So once again i used the stamp set that came with creative stamping magazine issue 60.  



XL DL card made by folding white linen A4 card in half lengthwise.   Using a multicolour ink pad i stamped the 3 different leaf images onto white linen card. Once dry i die cut into wonky stitched circles and mounted onto circles die cut from dark maroon cardstock.  I cut maroon and white card to fit my base, i used the same ink and the splatter stamp around the edges to tie it in with my leaf toppers and attached to the card front. 

I added my leaf topper circles to the base with foam tape.  I then added lots of little enamel drops around my leafs with viva paper pens in dark red, yellow & orange to just add some interest.   


Close up of the middle circle, i used black ink to stamp one of the quotes from the stamp set.  It says 'Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower'

 Items used:
Leaf stamps - creative stamping mag issue 60
Kaleidacolor rainbow ink pad 'cappuccino delight'
Viva paper pens - red, yellow & orange
Wonky stitched & plain circle dies
White linen card - craftUk
Maroon cardstock - payper box

Please do hop over to cardz4guyz to see what everyone else comes up with for this great theme and to join in. 

I hope you all have a good week. Emma

I love this card Emma, the stamp set is brilliant, I've had lots of uses out of it. I'll have to check out the Viva paper pens, I ended up buying a few of the Shimmer Shakers after reading your Butterflies post earlier this month :) Love & hugs - Debs xxx

Beautiful card Emma, I love the autumnal colours and the leaf stamps are fab. Thank you so much for my card which was also made using these stamps and now with your description I can see how it was produced. Will have to look at the ink pad as loving this mix of colours, right up my street. Big hugs Kirsty. x
